Squeaked by on the switch exam with a 790 a few days ago. This was my 3rd time sitting for the exam after a few months studying.
Initially I used the Boson CCNP Network Simulator product materials for prep, but quickly learned that studying the actual Cisco documentation is the best preparation. If I had to do it again I would have bought used switches instead of using the Boson simulator product.
That said, I did use the Boson practice exam as well and I thought the questions were good and helpful with preparing - the material seemed better than the Network Simulator product.
If you've gotten discouraged and have already sat and failed the exam, don't give up.
Good luck and onto route!
Any input on this is greatly appreciated!
We are planning on migrating to Ex 2016 from Ex 2010.
Currently we have 2 CAS and 2 MBX servers with no hardware load balancing in place. Total of 5,000 mailboxes.
We'd like to move to a hardware load balancer for the new environment but am unsure at what point and how we might introduce the load balancer as part of the migration.
Should it be implemented before/during/after ?
Thanks for any suggestions/ides.
I am looking for some feedback on some changes we are going to make in our Exchange 2010 environment.
We currently have 2 mailbox servers (with DAG) and two front end servers using Windows Network Load Balancing.
Current storage is all but used up - we are getting a new SAN shortly.
Once the new SAN in place, we are planning on making all four of our servers to be multi-role (mailbox, client access, hub) and we also will be implementing a hardware based load balancer.
Questions are: - Would it make more sense to create a brand new DAG along with new Exchange 2010 servers instead of attempting to modify our existing environment? - Or, do we keep with the current DAG and create fresh new Exchange 2010 servers which are all multi-role?
We have a fairly large environment (2000 mailboxes) - the most important things for the deployment are stability and uptime ...
Thanks for any help!
